Andrew, no doubt these are wonderful tuts but the subtle dark humor and direct "Look at this because it's so cool too!" you impart is quite priceless.

Keeps out the dry demons exceptionally well for such a pointy clicky inorganic physical (mental.. hah, rabbit hole) process.

Hey so my school allowed me to go through and do all of your tutorials as a sort of independent study! But the tutorial project for this tutorial is down or something! Please put it back up! Thanks a lot! I love using after effects so much and you have great work flow!

Hey Andrew, you sort of skip over the alt-begin bracket part here. What do you press (alt) with?!!?!

I was just about to ask why do u needed to use the white solid, why won't just put the mask on the frozen frame layer, then I realized u couldn't move just the mask (not easily, only if u change the mask path point by point, which could give u maybe a more precise look)

Andrew,

This is a great tutorial, as are all the rest. But I find the subject matter a bit disturbing. yea I know, I am going to get booed off for saying this. But as someone who has been around this sort of thing, i found it of great distaste. If this was the first thing I saw on here, I wouldnt return. But since you are such a great teacher and at least from what we can see on here, a sensible guy, its not going to run me off. But i cant speak for other first time or second time visitors.

Anyway, Just thought youd like the feedback. Thanks for all your hard work and knowledge.

Hey Andrew great tutorial just finished it and will keep moving up your awesome tutorial list and learn as much as I can.

I did have a hard time getting a good motion track on the wall as the blood slides a tiny bit on the wall.

Here's my attempt of this fun tutorial on my YouTube Channel.

Hi, Andrew! I love this site, and your tutorials are friggin awesome. Much respect. Now, all of that said...

I FOUND AN ERROR WITH THIS ONE!

Sorry about the all-caps. Really, I just did that to get some attention. I'm not an all-caps kinda guy. While using your clip in my own project for practice, I discovered that the mask covering the guy's head is creating an artifact on the traffic behind him. If you go to 6:18, look at the car behind the head matte as you scrub the time indicator. That car jumps backward a little as the matte moves to the right and down. At first, I thought I was just doing something wrong, but the tutorial has the same problem.

The next logical step is to now try fixing this, but am I right here? I'm not seeing things, am I? Much love, Mr. K. I hope your golf game has improved

from mexico!! dont get it !! i dont understand why you freez the duplicate of the original clip in one frame!!! and why you have to track the clip!!! i dont understand what is the real function of that tool in some tutorials i hope someone can explain whit words some of the functions because i try to make the tutorial whit out those steps and i didnt get the result!! andrew you are the master in AE AWESOME
Ezra
04/02/2011
He makes a frozen duplicate of the original where you see the sky so that when you mask off the guy's head you will see the sky naturally there, think if you didn't have it and you cut off the head from the picture, you would just have a hole in your image. The tracking is used to make it appear as if the effects he is adding to the shot were there when he took it, it makes the fog and other effect move and respond to the camera and the whole thing looks more convincing, otherwise it will stick out that you are just pasting stuff on a video that was already shot before. I hope that helps to clarify.

My man, you are fantastic! I've watched a handful of your tutorials as I wait for AE CS4 to arrive in the mail. You are extremely talented and I am anxious to get the product and get to work. I've already purchased the Action Essentials 2 I believe is.

Excellent and keep it up!
